Five Reasons to Get Excited about Guitar Culture in St Louis

By Richard D. -St. Louis Guitar Teacher

Are you considering guitar lessons in St. Louis? Whether you are a beginner or have several years of experience under your belt, there are many reasons to get excited about the guitar scene in St. Louis. From a guitar player and true music enthusiast, here are 5 reasons to get excited about guitar culture in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.

  1. Chuck Berry Still Lives Here. Chuck Berry may have very well invented rock n’ roll. In a Rolling Stone article last April, Berry’s recurring monthly performance in St Louis was cited as one of their “40 Reasons to Get Excited about Music.”

  2. There’s an Open Mic 7 nights a Week. There’s no better place to keep your performance chops up and network with other musicians - and in the St Louis area, there’s one somewhere 7 nights a week. Some of my favorites include Venice Café, The Shanti, Llywelyn’s Pub, Iron Barley, Hartford Coffee Company and Whatsmokin' BBQ Restaurant.

  • St Louis is a Great City to Study Guitar. We have amazing music programs at Washington University, UMSL, and SLU as well as Central Visual/Performing Arts High School, and Midwest Guitar Building and Repair School. And of course there are many wonderful TakeLessons teachers who are ready to help you get started with your guitar lessons in St. Louis!

  • A Sense of Community. KDHX 88.1 is our community radio station and they play local St Louis music every single day. For a list of local performances at nearly every venue in St Louis, pick up a free copy of the RiverFront Times every Thursday.

  • Festivals! We have a wonderful variety of annual music festivals, such as the Big Muddy Blues Festival, Schwagstock, Mardi Gras, PointFest and the St. Louis Jazz and Heritage Festival.

    About Cory
    So you want to play an instrument? Well I have taught for over 40 years and have developed special programs for you on piano, guitar, bass, voice and other instruments for you to learn. From easy beginner to the most advanced, I will help you to learn the songs you love! Whether we use the most modern technology in my professional recording studio or just some chords or perhaps learning to sight read something for a talent show, I can take you all the way to the highest performance level. Your goals are my goals.
    I have studied with some of the most famous teachers in the world, including Charlie Parker's pianist Walter Bishop Jr. and Dizzy Gillespie's musical director Mike Longo, among many others.
    I also have the experience of over 400 gigs a year to bring to your lesson. I have performed on piano, guitar and bass and voca
    ls with famous stars and some really great bands which will help me answer many of your questions. I am currently still working, teaching and recording all the time. I also have a professional recording studio in my home which you can take full advantage of.

    I focus on sight-reading, ear training (like jamming and playing blues) and theory. You get to choose the areas you would like to learn.
    Once we have established the basics including melody and chords, we will pick songs you want to learn to play with your friends or just by yourself. We can use music books or go on YouTube to learn your songs.
    I have helped students with auditions as well as performances. After only a few lessons you will hear and see things differently than ever before.

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    My studio comes complete with acoustic and electric keyboards, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass and amps to play through, as well as professional microphones for recording.

    Cory is awesome! As an adult beginner I was very nervous to start taking lessons but Cory was quick to put me at ease and make learning piano fun. I've walked away from every lesson feeling good and like I have learned a lot. If you're looking for a music teacher I would definitely recommend Cory!

    I teach all styles of guitar from classical, rock, shred, metal, acoustic, singer songwriter, blues, you name it.

    My main goal is to get you capable of understanding music from a musician's perspective; having a framework to understand what's happening when you listen to music so you can either figure it out by ear or know how to go about finding accurate notation and learning it yourself.

    About Brandon
    What do Britney Spears and Beethoven have in common?

    They're both pop music! One just happens to be 200 years old.

    Berklee College of Music graduate from Boston, MA with a passion for all genres, though mainly popular music. For me, music has always been about having fun and doing what feels natural, and I try to pass this on to my students.

    In all seriousness, if it's not fun, why do it?

    I'm super laid back, but I refuse to let you spend your money, or someone else's, on lessons like it's going out of style. I believe that the more fun you have with music, the more you'll want to play, and as a result, the better a musician you will become.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    During the first lesson, we will create a clear goal and purpose for your lessons. Each lesson will be tailored to what YOU need in order to achieve your
    goal.

    Every student has a different motivation for taking lessons. Whether you simply want to show off for that special someone or you're trying to get into an elite music school, it is my objective to get you there with a smile on your face.

    Want to learn the top ten guitar solos of all time? And nothing else? Just say so!
    Want to learn piano theory until you're dizzy? We can do that too!
    Always wanted to play drums but think you're too uncoordinated? No such thing!

    Or, maybe you're already a polished musician lacking the theory to get another degree - no matter what your motivation may be, together we can make it happen.

    You don't have to listen to a specific type of music to be a real musician. Yes, believe it or not, Britney Spears is a musician too! We'll work on the types of music YOU enjoy, not the stuff your parents, friends, or coworkers consider 'good' music.

    Whether you want to learn Justin Bieber or Rachmaninoff, it's cool with me - believe it or not, the two have something in common...don't believe me? I'll prove it!

    *** Specialties ***
    I specialize in online music lessons. I have an extensive background in computers and technology, and incorporate a lot of unique tools to my online lessons to greatly improve the user's experience, such as multiple camera angles; picture-in-picture views; displaying sheet music on your screen and being able to highlight, point, and change pages for you; as well as interactive games similar to Rock Band that I control on my end as the student participates on their end.

    I teach all styles, though my interests are mainly in pop, electronic, rock/hard rock/classic rock, metal, and classical.

    *********************************************************************************
    PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING LESSONS:

    - All students must meet at least once a week.
    - Cancellations are allowed once every three months.
    - Rescheduling is always allowed and requires at least 24 hours notice.
    - Rescheduled lesson must occur within two weeks.

    About Rebecca
    I have 50 years of teaching experience, from beginners to advanced students. I also teach the people no one else thinks are teachable because I work with people from where they are and find their best learning styles. Several of my students are now professional musicians, but that's not everyone's course. I teach every age range from 3-83 and everything from classical to country-western. And I teach every orchestral and band instrument, and guitar, bass, and drum kit and some instruments you've never heard of. I also teach voice, pop, rock, opera, doesn't matter to me.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    Important Note: I will no longer take new students that want lessons every other week, beginning Nov 1. Inconsistent lessons, especially with younger students, allows them to forget too much between sessions.

    What I teach is transferable
    to EVERY endeavor whether it's music or math or soccer. I require practice on the student's part. You will be able to play recognizable songs within your first month. You tell me what you or your child wants out of music lessons, and I will tell you exactly how to get it.

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    Lesson will happen in a space next to the family room which is upstairs. Teacher has a collection of instruments, music stands, couches for seating. Park on the street or driveway.

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    Instrument

    *** Specialties ***
    I'm flexible. I have taught everything from country western guitar to classical guitar, from Jazz trumpet to orchestral audition music, from barbershop singing to Broadway musical singing. I have even taught ballet. I cater my methods to the student's best learning style.

    Ken has taught electric and acoustic guitar for 20+ years

    About Ken
    At age 12 Ken picked up a guitar and fell in love with the instrument. He began with an obsession with Metallica and related bands that later evolved to a passion for classical and jazz music, music theory.

    From 2008 -2010 completed the music program at Diablo Valley College in June of 2010, which includes extensive coursework in Music theory, Piano and Guitar. Since 2011 Ken has been a Jazz Guitar Performance Major at Cal State East Bay. There he has studied Classical and jazz Guitar performance with world class musicians.

    "Music has many different levels and the beautiful thing is there is a place for everybody. I have spent a lot of time throughout my music career going “back to basics” in order to become a better musician. We are all capable of becoming great musicians and just because someone can play faster than you doesn't n
    ecessarily make them better. Music provides everything from healing power to just plain fun for the human spirit so I always encourage students to go at there own pace and work within their abilities."

    *** Lesson Details ***
    20+ years experience as a musician and teacher Ken has taken self taught route and the lessons route. "I believe 100% that being taught by someone who has sufficient experience really provides the roadway for a solid foundation whether you are planning on being a pro, just for fun and all levels in between. The combination of self-discipline and a good teacher are a must to have as a musician."

    Amongst many other approaches of teaching music, I try to instill the 3 most lacking areas most musicians usually have to begin.

    1. Sight reading: Unfortunately most common with guitarists! Tablature is a somewhat useful way to start but reading music will open many doors and opportunities for any musician

    2. Collaboration: A teacher provides one way of collaboration as well as a band or an ensemble at school or in the community.

    3. Improvisation: I provide a music theory background and I have a method plan for chord progressions, and help with learning the entire guitar.

    I take step-by-step approaches towards giving a student encouragement and instilling music appreciation. I am very organized so every lesson will be documented and we will work on specific areas of fundamental development. Most of all have fun! That what gets us playing music in the first place!

    I look Forward to meeting you!

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    Lesson room, music stands, benches, amps, two pianos, computer area for recording,

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    Their own instrument and any necessary cables, amps etc. for them I will provide my own

    *** Specialties ***
    I mostly specialize in jazz and classical guitar and have taught blues, rock, metal and Latin American guitar. All ages and all levels. I also teach western music theory (classical and jazz) from the baroque period to modern day. I teach beginning piano which consists of the basic fundamentals (i.e. scales, posture hand positions, etudes and beginning repertoire)

    Beginner to intermediate guitar player's last stop for a great guitar teacher! What's a beginner? You have no knowledge or experience playing. What's intermediate? You have limited knowledge and/or are familiar w/ some chord names/shapes.

    Learn everything about how the guitar works while learning how to play and write songs. We'll have tons of ways to develop your rhythm, finger strength and flexibility. Together, we'll avoid bad habits so you can progress faster!

    Lessons feature various styles of music, appropriate for all ages: blues, rock, pop, country, folk , jazz, funk, latin and reggae. Even though I can teach multiple genres; if you want to focus on one type or certain artists, we can definitely do that!

    I follow a structured way of learning guitar based on a guitar course I've created; and I customize the lessons according to the student's needs and wants. Whether you want to play in a band or just have fun - your personalized lessons will help you achieve that goal!

    About Rachel
    Rachel started playing guitar and singing when she was 13 when she got a Christmas present from her father who happens to be a musician, also. Learning covers for a few years she eventually started writing her own music around age 16.

    Now, 31, she teaches beginner guitar classes; holds online concerts as well as live shows; and teaches budding artists how to start their own creative business from home.

    Her teaching passion came from her love for the experience- having played in bands since 18; recorded a full album when in 2011. Her style is considered Indie Folk, playing a mix of covers and originals.

    Happy learner :)

    I have been playing guitar for over a decade and have tons of performance experience gigging in a local rock band. Combine that with a curriculum that starts with fundamentals and expands quickly into playing your favorite songs and you have a great start to beginning or expanding your guitar playing abilities.

    About ryan
    Hi, my name is Ryan and I would love to teach you how to play guitar. I've been playing for over 10 years and have been gigging for a little less than that in my band. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience performing on stage and teaching to people of all ages. If you want to shred, jam, or rock out then look no further. I okay all styles of music and pride myself in building a fun and educational curriculum based solely on you or others who have had similar interests as you. This means if you have a question about guitar or music in general, 9 times out of 10 I can answer it. The remaining tenth is either a well kept secret, or something that is left to be found. So if you're ready to start your journey or just need a guide to help you on your way, let's​ go!

    Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!
